WE ARE NOW A CHARITY! (a CIO or Charitable Incorporated Organisation)

After nearly two years, many bitten nails, much sweating over words, and numerous emails, we have finally been granted Charity status by the Charity Commissioners. We must thank Angela Auset, Stephanie Batterbury, David Elson and Toni Massari for all their work on producing a new constitution.This and other important documents will be added to the website over the next few months.

The meetings will remain free, as will membership; you will still have speakers that inform and interest, and we will still represent your views and issues to the authorities, and send you your newsletters (3 per year).

The difference will be that we will able to fundraise, and so protect ourselves against future Council changes, and our Trustees will be protected  too. So welcome to our new Trustees who have come forward to manage BOPF! They are: STEPHANIE BATTERBURY, JUDITH BROWN, DOUG BURGE, DAVID ELSON, GLORIA MORRIS, GILLIAN SEWARD and TONY WILSON.  And thank you to all our members for your continued support!      

We are also interested in hearing from any of you who may be interested in becoming a Trustee; and remember we are always delighted to hear from anyone wishing to join (tell everyone you know over 54!) & stories or feedback you have on being an older person in Bristol and the difference being a member of the BOPF has made to you.


Judith Brown, Chair of the Trustees

Please bear with us while we update our website and policies to reflect our new status!
